Thiruvananthapuram: Member of Parliament Shashi Tharoor has rallied for Kerala University students who are concerned as their post-graduate exams are set to clash with the UGC NET-JRF tests next week.
Tharoor has urged Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and Governor Arif Mohammed Khan, who is also the chancellor of universities, to resolve the predicament of the students concerned.
"It's intolerable that Kerala University has today released the timetable of PG 2nd Sem exams scheduled to begin Nov 22, just 4 days prior to the date, despite it clashing w/UGC NET-JRF exams," Tharoor tweeted on Thursday.
The university exam that was earlier set to take place on November 15 was rescheduled for next week. The students had reportedly requested the university union for a postponement.
It is understood that some students were told by the university helpdesk that the exam would be postponed. However, the authorities are yet to reschedule the exams.
